The voter registration deadline for Nevada is Oct. 6th if you are submitting an application by mail. Online registration is open until Oct. 29th. Missed the registration deadline? No problem, you may register to vote in person with valid ID at early voting locations and on Election Day.
Due to COVID-19, Nevada will send all registered voters ballots in the mail for the Nov. 3rd election. If you did not receive a ballot or have recently registered, request a ballot here by Oct. 20th. Your ballot must be postmarked by Election Day.
Vote-by-mail systems are different in every state. It is critical that you follow directions and pay attention to the details, or your ballot could be challenged or even tossed.
The signature on your ballot must match your DMV signature, or signature that is on file with your voter registration if you do not have a state-issued ID. If your signature does not match, your ballot could be tossed.
Here are some important things to know about voting by mail in Nevada:
When you return your ballot, postage is prepaid. You do not need to add stamps.
Your state has a "postmark" deadline of Tuesday, November 3rd. To make the mandated postmark date, put the ballot into your home mailbox for collection at least one day prior to ensure it is picked up and processed. You can also drop the ballot off at the post office before the last posted collection time for the postmark deadline. You may also return your ballot via a delivery service, like FedEx or UPS, to ensure delivery date.
Your state gives you the opportunity to "cure" any challenge to your ballot. This means if there is something wrong with the signature on your ballot, the state is required to contact you and give you options to remedy your ballot. Your clerk will provide step-by-step instructions for curing your ballot. Be sure to check your mail and messages (phone and email) for incoming communication from your election's office to have the opportunity to cure. You must "cure" your ballot by Tuesday, November 10th, seven days after Election Day.
Only registered voters affiliated with a particular party may participate in its caucus. Visit the Nevada Democratic Party and Republican Party websites for party specific information on caucus locations and procedures. Note that caucus will NOT be held at traditional polling locations.
Some congressional seats, state offices and constitutional amendments may be included on the ballot.
